AECI awards contract for air-pollution control project

Posted online

Associated Electric Cooperative Inc. awarded an air-pollution control project to the joint venture of Black & Veatch and J.S. Alberici Construction Inc.

The project installing selective catalytic reduction technology to Unit 2 of Associated's New Madrid Power Plant represents the largest contract award for such a project in the United States.

The project will begin commercial operation in December 1999. It is designed to reduce nitrogen-oxide emissions from the plant by 93 percent.

"This project will be AECI's cornerstone for achieving compliance with the Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Air Act Amendment of 1990," an Associated release said.

Black & Veatch and Alberici will provide all catalyst, ammonia systems, civil-structural, electrical-control and balance-of-plant work associated with the project. Sargent & Lundy will provide engineering services for the project.

Kansas City-based Black & Veatch provides engineering, procurement and construction services to the power, infrastructure and process markets.

J.S. Alberici Construction is based in St. Louis. The general contractor built the TWA Dome in St. Louis.

The New Madrid Power Plant has two 600-megawatt units located along the Mississippi River. It is part of Associated's generating capacity that provides wholesale power to six regional and 51 local electric cooperative systems in Missouri, Oklahoma and Iowa.[[In-content Ad]]
